What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Dental Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers offer an effective way to restore the appearance of teeth that have been subject to the effects of damage, discoloration, the natural aging process, and other common concerns. Like many of our cosmetic dentistry options, dental veneers offer numerous benefits for individuals across the age spectrum, including:
- Improvement in signs of chips, cracks, or gaps between the teeth
- Improvement in signs of severe stains and discoloration
- Improvement in signs of mild teeth misalignment (a method of “Instant Orthodontics”)
Additionally, veneers are made of a durable, natural-looking, stain-resistant material that often produces outcomes that last many years into the future. Dr. Patt can evaluate your concerns to see if dental veneer treatment is the best option for your needs and goals.

What Does the Porcelain Dental Veneers Treatment Process Involve?
BOCO Dental employs a very precise, multi-step process for dental veneer treatments to ensure the best possible aesthetic and functional results. Over a series of about three appointments, we will evaluate your teeth, prepare them to successfully accommodate the veneers, and then place the final restorations. First, we will take digital photos of your teeth and the affected areas. Once you are determined to be a good candidate for dental veneers, we will take an impression of your teeth and produce a model that can serve as a “blueprint” for the custom-designed veneers. Upon your approval, we will prepare your teeth and fit them with temporary veneers that can give you a preview of the potential results as the final veneers are being developed. The final veneers will be manufactured by our master dental technician and, once they are ready, you will be able to review them before they are firmly placed with a durable dental cement. Once this step occurs, the veneers will be given a nice polish to complete the procedure. Dental veneers are color-tinted and customized for shape and length to provide a natural appearance. Ultimately, they should produce a virtually seamless aesthetic blend with surrounding teeth.
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
The length of results possible with dental veneers is one of the most prominent benefits of this treatment. By taking good care of the veneers, maintaining excellent at-home oral health routines, and attending the recommended schedule of dental check-ups each year, many patients experience the results of dental veneers for decades. With that in mind, patients who grind or clench their teeth while sleeping may want to consider a nightguard to provide protection against potential damage from pressure on the veneers over time.
How Much Do Porcelain Dental Veneers Cost?
The cost of porcelain dental veneer treatment at our practice typically starts at approximately $1,880. Please note that the total price often varies significantly among patients based on the number of veneers being placed, laboratory costs, the type of materials utilized, and other factors associated with the customized treatment plan. Since dental veneers are considered cosmetic in nature, these treatments are generally not covered under dental insurance policies; however, BOCO Dental accepts a variety of convenient forms of payment. Options include financing plans available for qualified applicants through CareCredit®, a reputable third-party financing agency that allows patients to pay for their treatment in a series of installments. A member of our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the most ideal way to pay for your dental veneers procedure.
